Power Station Outlet

The Power Station as Dungeness is the main feature of what is otherwise a fairly featureless landscape. The outlet pipe from the station is considered by many to be a great fishing location as it seems to be a natural draw for most species of fish, due to the warmer water. Dungeness is considered one of the best fishing locations in the whole of the UK and knowing some specific areas can be advantageous to anybody fishing there. Bass and flatties make up the majority of the sport in the summer and codling are the main target during the winter.

Summer Species: Bass, sole, plaice, mackerel, smoothhound, garfish, bream, dogfish, scad and pollack

Winter Species: Codling, whiting, pouting, dabs, flounders and rockling

Bait: Lugworm, ragworm, mackerel, squid, peeler crab and sandeels

Tactics: Large baits for large fish are the order of the day here. Mackerel and squid baits are a good bet during the summer months fished on a simple Pennell style dropper rig at range, or fished close in the gutter. Fishing this way will give you a chance of a decent bass or potential ray. For the flatties and other summer species fish 2 hook loop rigs with fish or worm baits for the best results. In the winter months large baits are used by most to target the cod. Again pulley rigs with 2 large hooks fished with cocktail baits such as black lugworm and squid will work. Again smaller worm and fish baits will pick up the other species.

Getting there: Park in the car park close to the power station and make the walk east to the outlet.
